Stock Question?

I have a question about buying company stocks, but I dont know were to start with the questions. So if this is all over the place Im sorry. Do I need to buy a sertant amount of stocks or how does it work? Then lets say I buy brand X at $2.50 and sit on it and it goes up to $25.50. Can it go negitave were I owe money or what? I need a little help on this if anyone can help me.

Re: Stock Question?

well I personally am investing in a 401k and if you dont have that choice I would probably start off with low to no risk investments rather than stocks unless there is a specific stock you really like and want to own some of (like as in will make money)

Re: Stock Question?

I wanted to start off with 100 shares in Ford and just keep buying more as I save up more money and sit on it for awhile or ever.

Re: Stock Question?

If you buy 100 shares of Ford for $1000 (for example), you're paying $10 per share. If the stock drops to $5 a share, you don't pay anything, but your $1k investment is now worth only $500. If the stocks go up to $20 a share, then your $1k investment is now worth $2000. That's how it works in a very simple nutshell. My advice to you is to talk to some investment management companies if you don't have access to a 401k with your employer. T. Rowe Price is a very good outfit to hook up with.
